7.19 Building an Online Community on Facebook (Obj. 5)
Chances are you already have a Facebook profile and communicate with friends and family. You may be a fan of a celebrity or a business. Now you can also become a fan of your business communication class if your instructor decides to create a course page on Facebook. The main purpose of such a social networking site for a class is to exchange links and interesting stories relevant to the material being learned. Intriguing tidbits and business news might also be posted on the â€œwallâ€ to be shared by all signed-up fans. Everybody, even students who are quiet in class, could contribute. However, before you can become a fan of your business communication class, it needs to be created online.
Your Task. If you have a profile on Facebook, all you need to do is search for the title of the newly created business communication Facebook page and become a fan. If you donâ€™t have a Facebook account yet, on-screen prompts will make it easy for you to build a profile.
